• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A weekly late-night programming block on Japan's Fuji Television, devoted to anime series targeted at audiences lying outside of typical anime-watching demographics. Despite the time slot, series broadcast under the noitaminA flag generally attract a sizable viewership, and have developed a reputation for high quality.

noitaminA began as a half-hour slot on Fuji TV, but expanded to one hour for the spring 2010 season. Its official Japanese website is here, with a somewhat less up-to-date English version available as well.

The name is "Animation" backwards, in case you're wondering.

Series originally broadcast during noitaminA:
